CPS/DCF have grown into cancerous monsters that hurt more children than they help.
I can not believe this is allowed to happen in this county. There needs to be change. DHS should not be able to be allowed to convict on preponderance of evidence!
My grandchildren were removed from my home. Cps told lies on me to the judge so they could put my grandchildren in a small trailer with no place to put Thier clothes and these 2 children have stayed at my house and I supplied Thierry needs and now they are trying to make me look like the bad person when all I have done is Love and support these 2 children who were both born on the day my son was tragically killed in an auto mobile accident. They are my 2 little angels!
Tx cps is a Joke. Threats upon more threats. Never once worked with us to get my step daughters back. After all allegations by the police were found false they still refused them back. No they are threating to take future children. It is the biggest joke ever!
they took my daughter because I was married to an abusive man (now divorced) they won't return her now that I have a home and everything it has for over a year and a half because I don't have a driver's license. I get to see her only two hours a week!
Absolutely agree!! Texas CPS is really a front for legalized human trafficking!!
There are so many cases of children dying and being abused in foster care which should NEVER happen!
We cant find lawyers fast enough or willing enough to go against their city county colleaguesw. My childrens case is based upon a documentedly fraudulant call. You have to get a law degree in 72 hrs guilty or innocent or they are placed. Even when they are taken without warrant or charge. Were spending our parental lives teaching 'stranger danger" and they re ripping healthy honor students from decent homes and committed parents. When we do find alawyer we can afford they are reticent to go against their city county colleagues . all the while your searching your wondering who's pulling my babies pants down or helping with baths and toiletries or are they drinking in front of my sober teen? Then cys tries saying you appear to have mental problems..so you have another low blow. It is a parents worst nightmare and more traumatic than any loving child can handle - enter psychotropic drugs and a mental health disability stigma for life in previously healthy taught to be drug free or min children. It's a travesty of justice going on here and we the parents and grandparents are not going to take it anymore.

THERE SHOULD BE SOMETHING BE DONE TO THESE PEOPLE WHO MAKE FALSE ACCUSATIONS AND RUIN PEOPLES LIVES!! CPS IS GREEDY AND ONLY CARES ABOUT THE MONEY THEY RECEIVE FOR TAKING KIDS OUT OF THEIR HOMES! THIS SHOULD BE OUTLAWED!! MY GRANDKIDS WERE TAKEN AND GIVEN TO OTHER RELATIVES WHO ARE JUST WANTING THEM SO THEY CAN GET MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT! CPS WOULD NOT LET ME HAVE MY GRANDKIDS AND WOULD NOT CALL ME BACK AND TELL ME WHY! I COOPERATED TO THE FULL EXTENT! I CALLED MY DAUGHTER AND SHE SAID THEY WILL NOT LET ME HAVE THEM BECAUSE I ADMITTED TO DOING DRUGS! I AM DEVASTATED THAT THIS LADY HAS LIED ON ME!

I HAVE NEVER DEALT WITH CPS BEFORE AND IF I WOULD HAVE KNOWN HOW THEY ARE I WOULD HAVE NEVER ASKED ABOUT THE SS#. NEVER GOT A CALL BACK FORM CPS TO GO PICK UP MY GRANDKIDS! I WOULD LIKE TO PRESS CHARGES AGAINST THIS PERSON FOR TELLING MY DAUGHTER THAT I ADMITTED TO USING DRUGS! MY DAUGHTER KNEW IT WAS A LIE BUT COULD NOT SAY ANYTHING BECAUSE SHE IS AT THEIR MERCY.

CPS PROFILES PEOPLE, RUINING LIVES OF MANY FAMILIES, WHO ARE ONLY TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING FOR THEIR CHILDREN THE WAY THEY CAN ,MOST KIDS WHO REALLY NEED CPS TO RESCUE THEM NEVER GET RESCUED AND EITHER END UP DEAD OR THE ONES SEEN COMMITING CRIMES, OR ON DRUGS. IM FROM A SMALL GERMAN TOWN WHERE EVERYBODY WHO WORKS FOR COMAL COUNTY BACK EACH OTHER UP ;RIGHT OR WRONG.PRETTY SURE IF YOU ASK ATTORNEYS FROM SURROUNDING AREAS TO FIGHT A CASE IN COMAL COUNTY they WILL TELL YOU THE SAME.
I have personally seen 3 different CPS case's where caseworkers lie under oath, hide information, and do nothing about situations that they are really suppose to do something about.
So my hell began on 8/5/14 - 9/26/14. My 14 year old daughter was scheduled to spend 2 weeks in the summer with her father. Now after my ex an I spoke he informed me that she would be home around 6 pm. Now while
at her fathers my grandma who had been ill had a turn for the worst, I then called my daughter to ask if she wanted to come an see grandma before she passes. She said talking to her is what she wanted to do. now unknown to anyone on our side of the family that on 8/12/14 my ex went into court and filled a restraining order against me from having any contact with my daughter an himself. Now mind you I didnt find out about this order until 8/17/14 when trying to find out why my daugnter wasnt dropped off at our scheduled time. Now on 8/13/14 at about 12:15pm my grandma passed away. The one person who my ex would never challenge, she was my protector and guardian angel. Since I was unable to reach my daughter that day, I called my ex's mother and informed her an asked if she could please have my daughter call me that evening. Which my daughter called me we talked for about 20 min. or so. We then again spoke with her on 8/15/14 and 8/17/14 in the am. Now I had to work from 5-11:30 pm on the 17th. When it was 7 pm I was sent on my 1/2 Hour break, when I called home I was informed by my husdand that she wasnt home. So I then left a msg and text msg for my daughter to contact me. I then tried contacting my ex'.s mother to see if she had a good working number for my ex. Strange that after 5+ years I finally was given a valid an working phone, now this is the only reason why my daughter had a cellphone was the fact that my ex an his girlfriend never had a constant working number. Multiple pay as you go phone. Once I got through to my ex, he proceeded to inform me that there was a retraining Order for me that states im not allowed to have any contact with my child or himself. I was given the case number and location. An my ex was nice enough to tell me that " I will never see my daughter again"
I felt like I was having a panic attack. Fear swept through my whole body. At that moment my boss allowed me to leave so I could try to unravel this. Once home I asked my mom to contact my daughter. Upon her contacting my daughter my mom recieved a text msg from my daughter saying, "per my attorney I am not to speak with you." let me tell you this was a shock and totally unexpected. So I called around 9:30 pm the non emergency number for the police. Now once the officer contacted me...not once did he find any restraing orders against me. So after speaking with the officer. I then called about 5 attorneys an left msgs. Now by the next day I was so stressed about my daughter an I found out that I was asked to help plan the memorial for my grandma. So I then started calling family law attorneys an get some advice as to what I need to do. One attorney suggested that I go to the court house an print a copy of what has been filed. Talk about not knowing wh
CPS does need to be reformed! They should operate to benefit and support parents and children...rather than harm and undermine them.
CPS should be abolished!
so many children are taken from supposedly abusive homes that are not and placed into homes that are
The ad-litem for my daughter was just sentenced to death, for killing the judge, his wife and the da.. He made my daughter believe she was molested! ! Help stop CPS!!!
THESE WORKERS WHO R LYING N ON POWER TRIPS THEY TEAR FAMILIES APART LEAVING THEM W MORE PROBLEMS THEN EVER..WTF.
I have had my children taken over hearsay.... now today got petition to terminate my rights. Michigan cps is a joke and needs to actually worry about kids that are being abused and neglected which mine were not.... they need rmto make it to where there has to be actual abuse or neglect proof....
Grand Traverse County needs to be Investigated
Walker county Georgia dfch came across stateline into Chattanooga Tennessee, and kidnapped my two week old grandson. Need help fighting to.get our little man home!!
In sept 2013 there was a "report of substance abuse alligations" and although i passed a hair and urine drug screen showed them my home, in dec 2013 they took my (then 1 year old) son into "protective" services. He is now 2 ive been fighting ever since, everytime i get what they want done they add on another recomendation. I live in FLorida and im fighting South Georgia I am a single mother of 3 children and they know i have my daughters full time but only got my son....i cant make any sense of this....i honestly think it has come down to the $ being made off this...My son is mixed (black/white) and my daughter are not (white non hispanic) i feel it has come down to a racial thing and twice now ive been denied custody back because the case worker Candice Yarbrough Monroe County (forsythe GA) failed to submit information/paperwork. Something has GOT to get done these people GOT to get exposed!!!!!!
A child is a gift from God..The ENTIRE SYSTEM seems to have forgotten that "What is In The Best Interests Of The Child". Instead, it appears that THEY have developed a NEW LOVE and that is the love of MONEY-the GREEN STUFF. It appears to line their pockets quite well,makes them turn their heads when needed, lose important paperwork at the last minute,and/or create or add false statements to LEGAL court documents, sometimes at the last minute( some refer to this as a blindside ).
if you really care about these poor kids please investigate RIVERSIDE COUNTY, CA take kids that aren't abused and won't help kids who are abused
Cps and fosters should not be able to cover up or withhold information about the children from their parents our the court.
Nore should they be able to manipulate the child or with hold child's testimony.
All cps csame services should be designed individually not the same
They need to stop taking children for no reason and keep children out of danger who's life is really at risk .
They persecute and jail the lawyers and judges who try to blow the whistle on the criminal activity of the CPS. They murdered Senator Nancy Schaefer when she tried to do something. The problem must run much deeper than CPS. I'm praying hard that there is a way for change to come about. KNOW YOUR RIGHTS. Look up "10 things you must do if CPS comes to your door."
These people aren't state regulated. Its a sick game. 9th st riverside county california. County farm road, riverside California. And the same lady from my childhood, old and still lying.
Damaged by the system over one decade ago. Still mourning my tragic loss.

FACT: If you commit a crime, you get a jury of twelve. If CPS decides to rip your precious children away from you, and judge you unfairly, there's no jury. Does that make sense?Secrecy + Money = Corruption. How could the government create the laws from 1997 which gives money to CPS for EACH child they adopt out, and not think that unscrupulous people would not see dollar signs? Shine the light on CPS, bring their dealings out of the darkness. By the way, I think that this evil goes much deeper than CPS, follow the money.
Blount county dhr is a joke.They treat people like they are nothing.
Stop the corruption!! Help bring my baby back home!! My case my didn't have yo go ad far as it did. I want my Anthony. He's my personal property he came from me!! I want him more than my own breath. Please.....
Stop the corruption!! Use tax dollars on the teal deals. Get a life!!!
This system needs reformed in so many ways. This is such a broken system and it is the children who are paying for it all! Absolute Injustice to Innocent Children.
My kids have been taken and stripped of my fatherly right to parent them based on lies, half-truths and false allegations. The system has used my military experience against. I have never abused my kids in any shape or form. Yet, the mother has abused my kids many times with evidence to prove it with her known drug use and physical abuse and she continues to be allowed to have the kids. I have stood up for my kids safety and wellbeing and have been told I have no right to do so. Based on of opinion of cps caseworker is what this system has based their judgement on. This worker has even stated he has never liked me from the start. There is no equality within this system and we need to stand up against the tyranny. The intire system needs to be reformed and those who have been part of the system need to be held accountable for their actions.
my kids were taken away cause of a cluttered house told to clean it and we did they still took them put In foster care just read my file lot so of lies and they have no proof of their allegations mostly heresay I love my kids and want them back did not get a chance to go with family members

my family was ripped apart by cps cooperstion.the saddezt part no.proof of any abuseon.kids.cps still adopted them out. .just for there money for there cooperation..
CPS lied in court documents against my family. We have been torn apart by a worker who lies and has hurt our children terribly. The attorney's they have appointed have lied. This abuse has to stop.
Please fix our system. Children are being kidnapped and killed at the hands of CPS! These are peoples lives! They are not just numbers and cases! This terrorism has to be stopped!
